With its soul soothing mountain and lake views and countless spots to enjoy them – whether from a scenic balcony in front of a fire table or from a breezy dock – a newly listed BC ranch has an undeniable appeal for a potential buyer. That is, if they have a cool $30 million to drop. The luxurious 73-acre ranch’s price tag makes it one of the priciest vacation properties currently for sale in Canada.

While it could easily function as a vacation home for an extended family (and their friends) to enjoy, the listing highlights its natural functionality as a corporate retreat, complete with a corporate boardroom, bar, and ample entertaining spots. As the listing points out, the property could also be converted into a functional ranch, thanks to its 20 acres of pastures with plenty of water for irrigation, barns with stalls, and outbuildings.

There's good news for international buyers looking to drop (a lot of) cash in the Canadian real estate marker: the pricey property is exempt from the country's Foreign Buyers Tax.

An added draw for those with no time to waste, the property comes completely furnished both inside and out. So, what you see in the listing is quite literally what you get.

Described in the listing as “rare art,” the sprawling property is unlike any other on the picture-perfect Shuswap Lake. Sitting among pines, fruit trees, and beautiful landscaping are two private and luxurious lakeside homes with well over 14,300 sq. ft of combined living spaces. These house a total of 16 bedrooms and 14 bathrooms.

The 10,729 square foot main house sets the stage for the property’s comfortable sophistication with its 36-foot-high porte-cochère and grand foyer with elevator. Everything about this home lends itself to entertaining. A large gourmet kitchen boasts Wolff appliances and a huge granite island and counters throughout. It houses a butler’s pantry, a 12-person dining room table, and sliding doors to an expansive cement balcony with dreamy views. A great room features 36-foot vaulted ceilings, a real rock fireplace, a large bar, and even a spotlight for entertainers.

For those who want to take it outdoors, large French doors lead to an expansive terrace with a rock gas fire table and rock outdoor kitchen with an extra-large Napoleon barbecue. The life of the party, the downstairs area features a billiards room, media room, and wine cellar. Also on this level is a gym, laundry, utility room, bathroom, and two bedrooms with ensuites. A welcoming spot for guests, this main home's bedrooms are all complete with wetbars, full ensuites, and balconies with postcard-worthy views of the glistening lake. The property is complete with a fully heated detached six-bay garage with 14-foot doors and a workshop.

Our Favourite Thing

Our favourite thing about this property is the peaceful and dreamy balconies found throughout. Aesthetically, they offer postcard-worthy views – the kind that immediately put the soul at ease – but also feature all the modern nice-to-haves, like rock fireplaces, kitchens, barbecues, and comfy furniture. In our books, these are all the ingredients of a day or evening well spent – with either a frothy cappuccino or crisp glass of wine in hand.

Meanwhile, the 3,995 sq. ft second property boasts nine-foot ceilings throughout and a double-car garage. The top floor features an open-concept living room with a large kitchen with quartz countertops and a large island. It houses two bedrooms with walk-in closets and ensuites, an office, bathroom, laundry, and large balcony with stunning lake views. Downstairs, a walk-out basement features a kitchen, living room, two bedrooms, a bathroom, and a cement deck complete with those lake views.

Of course, for some, the surrounding natural landscape may be this scenic property's biggest draw. A sophisticated summertime playground, the property features 1,200 feet of shoreline, two large docks/buoys, and a full-service beach cabana. Of course, the surrounding landscape offers a natural playground, with 45 acres of timbered forest. For guests looking to “rough it” and get up close and personal with nature, the property also features five RV sites with water, power, and septic.

You'll find us in the main home (on a balcony).
